leader harry reid. and people from the republican establishment, like senators john mccain and lindsey graham. our are contemptuous of vision, and our vision is distinctly different from today's reality. our country is $17 trillion in debt, and we are headed to bankruptcy. our gross domestic product shrunk, and wall street profits it. seven out of the 10 wealthiest counties in america are right here in boom town d.c. like "the hunger games." corrupted deals are standard operating procedure. yet, in the heartland, and in point is in the double digits. is in doublent digits. when obamacare is fully enacted, a million people will lose their current health insurance. bemillion people will still uninsured. have toily of four will pay $20,000 per year for the cheapest health-care plan. studies show that medicaid surgical patients today are far more likely to die than those that have no insurance at all. ae affordable care act is con. in reality, it is not affordable, callous, and cool. -- cruel. our attributes will be the that died.- patients most of our elected officials do not know how to

, what harry reid said. we know it's true because we've been reporting on this show really since the gun debate reignited after newtown that it's not just because republicans oppose it. it's also because of democrats, particularly in the senate. in fact, if you look at, we have a set of compiled -- some faces and names of democratic senators. if you look there's about a dozen. these are senators who have either outright said, no way to assault weapons ban, or those who run from us in the hallway when we try to ask or somewhere in between. the reason is most of them come from states where they're the whole concept of gun rights runs very wide and very deep. it would be cultural heresy many of them think to ban any kind of gun and to vote for that. the senators here may support other gun control like background checks or limiting high capacity ammunition clips, even trafficking, and so the thinking and it really has been all along, is that if they put the assault weapons ban in this broad gun control package, then the whole thing will go down whereas if they take it out, and put it as an a
? >> harry reid put the gun restriction measure up on the floor yesterday. he took out the assaults weapon's ban, and that will be an amendment. but it had universal background checks in it, and so that's moving forward. they have to get the immigration bill before august. if they don't pass this bill by july all of these guys have to go back to their districts. we know in august what those townhall rallies are like. they have do it before then. >> bill: you are right i have seen legislation on gun safety and immigration there is a lot -- on climate change? >> not so much. i don't think that's a big priority as far as something that is going to happen as assuredly as immigration or a gun-safety bill. >> i think the immigration issue is a really fascinating one because we're starting to see rush limbaugh that lou dobbs were the amnesty that destroyed the immigration debate in 2007. and rand paul has gotten caught up on this issue on amnesty and being attacked by the great rush limbaugh. >> bill: the republicans a lot billed by talk radio that pulled the plug on george bu
to be in legislative trouble. senate majority leader harry reid has frankly admitted he doesn't have the votes for a assault weapons ban and support for other legislation also appears shaky. >> it only has been three months since the newtown massacre. i mean, there was so much political support and really a rallying cry after that for stricter gun control measures. why does the political support seem so shaky right now, i guess is the question. >> well, there's two reasons. one is that time has passed. the polls have eroded somewhat. they're still generally in favor of the gun control people, depending on the poll, but not as strongly in favor. also the purpose of purple states. the simple truth is there are lawmakers who come from states where support is not nearly as strong as it is in other places, and they don't want to lose their jobs next year by making a stand on this issue right now, particularly on the more controversial parts. >> and they have to listen to the voters who put them in office as well. >> we'll see how it goes. >> tom foreman, thanks so much. >>> to the white house now w
